Thanks for the enthusiasm.

I hope to get some test flights in soon. I think I'm going to try it at first with a removable set of fins of different sizes to see how it handles in the yaw axis. I will see how it will fly without the fin but I won't know anything until the actual flight tests. Bob Hoey said that the wings need to be extremely light to enable maximum yaw stability (dutch roll dampening) and these are not built extremely light. They are average weight for a wing this size.

Controls and rigging going in this week then covering after that.

More later...

Perhaps use a gyro for yaw damping?

Any suggestions on gyros please? I plan on using one servo for each flap/aileron for 4 servos total. I would like to keep the controls independent.
